2018 written with sparklers in the nighttime

Nothing makes the new year brighter than a beautiful, glowing smile. 2018 is the year to put your dental health first! With proper oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist, you can enjoy the benefits of a confident, healthy smile.

Healthy Mouth Resolutions

We’ve created a list of easy resolutions that are perfect for helping you achieve a healthy mouth!

  • Brush Twice a Day
  • Brushing your teeth for two minutes twice a day helps prevent bacteria from sticking to your teeth and plaque buildup.

  • Floss Everyday
  • Flossing reduces the likelihood of gum recession and gum disease by removing food, debris, and bacteria from between your teeth and gums.

  • Avoid Sugary Foods
  • By avoiding sugar and eating nutritious foods, you can keep your teeth healthy and strong. Sugar erodes enamel and contributes to tooth decay and cavities.

  • Use Products With Fluoride
  • Using products that contain fluoride, such as toothpaste and mouthwash, can help protect your teeth against cavities, acid, and plaque buildup.

  • Attend Routine Dental Checkups
  • Visiting the dentist every six months for a dental cleaning and exam keeps your mouth in tip-top shape and keeps serious dental problems at bay.
